WFC Competitors Battled In “Super” Chicken Wing Challenge


WFC Competitors Battled In “Super” Chicken Wing Challenge

The world’s largest Food Sport event, the World Food Championships (WFC), wrapped up its 8th annual competition at Reunion Tower Lawn in Dallas this past October. Even with the Main Event’s impressive $350,000 prize purse, WFC offers additional avenues for its competitors to win extra money through opportunities outside of its tournament, including its Super Qualifier Challenge sponsored by Springer Mountain Farms.

The Super Qualifier contestants were comprised of the 20 overall highest ranking competitors who were knocked out of WFC’s Main Event and were challenged to whip up their most creative, finger-licking chicken wings using products provided by competition sponsor Springer Mountain Farms. 

The top three “super” performers earned a WFC 2020 Golden Ticket (which qualifies them for next year’s Ultimate Food Fight) and an additional cash prize. 

Springer Mountain Farms Super Qualifier Winners:

1st Place: Pamela Gelsomini

2nd Place: Chad Whittington

3rd Place: Veronica Callaghan
